Returning to Britain in the mid-1980s after spending several years in the US as the Observers Washington correspondent, Robert Chesshyre found a country shockingly altered by the rule of The Iron Lady, then at the height of her popularity.MoreReturning to Britain in the mid-1980s after spending several years in the US as the Observers Washington correspondent, Robert Chesshyre found a country shockingly altered by the rule of The Iron Lady, then at the height of her popularity. Disturbed by the Britain he now found himself in, he set out to travel the length and breadth of the UK to report on the state of the nation and the lives of ordinary people. Originally published as The Return of a Native Reporter to widespread critical acclaim in 1987, this new edition includes a piece describing a revisit to the former Easington Colliery in 2010 and an extensive new foreword by the author. In its scope, its relevance and its insight, it is a profound and shocking reminder that what we sowed then, we reap now.
